Following a major report at the end of January, the Government is soon expected to give the go-ahead to build a controversial nuclear power station, Sizewell B, in Suffolk. It will be the first of its kind in Britain, and the aim is to provide cheap electricity. But the plan has brought protests from people worried about safety, the effect on the local countryside, and whether it is really worthwhile. Director JULIEN COUSINS Editor ERIC ROWAN

: The Late Film: The Elephant Man

starring John Hurt, Anthony Hopkins, Anne Bancroft, Wendy Hiller, Freddie Jones
1884. Frederick Treves, an ambitious young London surgeon, is intrigued by a sideshow freak billed as the 'Elephant Man' and, after the exhibition is closed by the police, pays the owner for a private viewing. To his amazement, he finds behind the appallingly disfigured and brutalised exhibit, an intelligent and sensitive person whose rehabilitation he undertakes. Treves's efforts to reconcile society with Merrick is the subject of this true story of courage in the most terrible circumstances, with John Hurt brilliantly portraying the trapped soul within the 'Elephant Man'.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
